Celebrating Shakespeare in Art

If every picture tells a story, it makes a difference if the viewer is already familiar with the plot!

This lecture discusses the popularity of Shakespeare’s plays as subjects for art, and the different ways that the texts could be visually interpreted. Eighteenth-century academic high-mindedness gives way to
the fine detail of the Pre-Raphaelites, stage conventions affect painterly visions, and humour, tragedy and downright sentimentality (not to mention theatrical vanity) all find their place in a celebration of the Bard’s influence on pictorial art.
